  1. Purchased games and games send via code gone after reinstalling windows


    Before I wiped my pc I had purchased Forza Horizon 3 on my microsoft account and received Horizon 4 via a code sent to me.

    After reinstalling apparently my entire library is empty while the xbox app can see that i have play time on both games which makes no sense.


    How do I get my game back as together they are easily worth over $195

    :)
